Night Lords: Daemon Prince

What with all the Chaos-related nonsense going around caused by the release of Codex: Chaos Space Marines, I couldn't help but be caught up in the painting frenzy. I've had an interest in Night Lords for a while, and have dabbled in painting up Chaos models but never anything substantial or with a view to creating an army. The new Dark Vengeance boxed set has changed all that...

Today's post is to showcase a model I have been working on for a while but recently finished - a Night Lords Daemon Prince, complete with wings and power armour. The GW boxed set has been out for a while, and allows you to create a variety of Daemon Prince models - it has swords, wings, armour and other extras. I went with what looked good, rather than what plays well...



This model gave me a chance to try out some new painting techniques with the GW paint range. The wings in particular were drybrushed with Kindleflame dry compound, to give them a leathery appearance. The fleshy parts were highlighted with layering, but washed back with Carroburg Crimson and then the new Bloodletter glaze. Although initially I was sceptical of the glazes, in fact they give a nice matt finish which is difficult to replicate with the existing range.


What is next for the Chaos project? I have a load of partly assembled cultists in front of me, and I need to decide whether they should be Night Lords or Alpha Legion...
